Le Chateau Enchante Day Spa
A hidden gem in Lake Forest, Le Chateau Enchante Day Spa seriously puts the lux in luxurious.
This French-inspired day spa is elegance personified, from the cream silk crystal-embellished throw pillows on the cushy, highbacked sofas to the gilt mirrors on the walls… you’ll feel like you’re visiting Versailles.
Owner Sarah Oliva is attentive to every detail about her restful space, from the fresh flowers in the lobby to the complimentary snacks, to the high quality of the essential oils and facial products.
She’s also a CMT and former fitness trainer, so she knows how the body works and is able to leverage that skill into her famous pain-relieving massages. That skill explains the satisfied clients that regularly return to this spa. They come back for the nothing-short-of-miraculous body and skin treatments – they use Lucrece and Sanitas – and because Sarah and her team treat her clients like family.
Standout Service: The hot stone massage keeps bringing customers back for more!
Le Chateau Enchante is located in Mission Viejo at 27742 Vista Del Lago J-3, Suite 114. To book an appointment call 310-977-4779.
Fonte Day Spa
Luminous and welcoming white decor and tastefully comfortable sofas make you feel like you’ve wandered into someone’s house in South Laguna Beach rather than a place of business.
That’s how you know you’re at Fonte Day Spa, where their full attention is on letting you enjoy your treatment of choice in an effortlessly tranquil atmosphere.
Fonte Day Spa really specializes in rest and relaxation. Owner Annette has what some customers have called “the best hands in the massage business” and an almost uncanny knowledge of what products work for individual skin types.
Fonte Day Spa offers dozens of services, from acne treatments to wrinkle treatments, and all of them are performed with meticulous attention to your comfort and health. And since the spa is located across the street from the beach, you can soak in a bit of that beach vibe, then stroll across the street to be pampered.
Standout Service: Their massage services are amazing, and Fonte offers Vaser Shape to tighten skin, lose cellulite and melt away inches.
Fonte Day Spa is located in Laguna Beach at 255 Thalia Street, Suite A. Book an appointment by calling 949-415-9085.
Aarna Spa at Pasea

The Aarna Spa is a 5,800 square foot oasis of tranquility that locals and hotel guests alike can enjoy. The elegant facility has valet parking, its own private garden with water feature and private cabanas, a relaxation lounge that will melt your stress away just looking at it, and men’s and women’s facilities. Enjoy the sauna, tranquil eucalyptus steam room, and a salt-water whirlpool (hint: don’t wear a new bathing suit in the saltwater, as the fabric will fade).
Everything about the Aarna Spa is calculated for maximum positivity and relaxation, from their choice of tasty snacks and heated massage tables to their soothing Balinese décor, but their massages are equally amazing.
Aarna Spa offers a full menu of interesting stone and salt massages, such as the Lavender Dream massage where you get a full-body exfoliation with Turkish salt crystals and lavender, then a neck and shoulder massage with lavender oil and warm stones. Service is friendly and professional with all the skill you’d expect from a luxury spa.
Standout Service: The Ocean Devotion, a Balinese massage with heated Himalayan salt stones set to the rolling sound of ocean waves, is the ultimate luxury.
